Saint Lucia has expanded an initiative to add free Wi-Fi zones across the island.
The latest iteration of the Government Island-Wide Network has added five free Wif-Fi “zones” across the island.
That includes spots in Constitution Park in Castries, Vieux Fort, Micoud, Canaries and Dennery.
The latest Wi-Fi wireless network expansion came at a cost of $4 million.
The project has two major aims: to provide Internet access for residents and to ensure that “visitors to Saint Lucia can stay connected while enjoying the island.”
Free Wi-Fi is now accessible in almost 30 public spaces in Saint Lucia as a result of the project, which is being undertaken in collaboration with the government of Taiwan.
